Beijing: The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has formed a special cyber warfare unit, called Blue Team, to safeguard the Internet security of the military, Chinese Defence Ministry has said.
It is important for the military to strengthen its defence capabilities against the Internet attacks, Defence Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng has been quoted as saying in the official media here today.
“Cyber attacks have become an international problem affecting both civilian and military areas. China is relatively weak in cyber security and has often been targeted. This temporary programme is aimed at improving our defences against such attacks,” Geng said.
